Wonderful things can come of trying something new

This week's Fiber Co. Yarn Tasting was delicious!  We had a marvelous time on Tuesday evening and want to thank all of you who participated.It was a fun way to sample a variety of yarns in a range of gauges.  Many of those who joined us tried working with needles that they don't normally knit with.  It can be fun to try something new, and we want to thank you all who came for bringing your love of experimention.We also want to the the Back Country Deli for providing delicious sandwiches, and Karen, the hero of the evening, who brought a homemade cheesecake that was a real treat!The surprise visit by Sabrina of Anzula was the cherry on the sundae.  All of us were delighted to see the new yarns that she's been experimenting with.  She has been hard at work in her studio dying up some select limited edition batches of variegated colors. squishy variegatedAnd look at the results!  These are skeins of Anzula Squishy.   They contain 375 yards of fingering weight yarn made from our favorite blend of 80% Merino, 10% Cashmere and 10% Nylon.We've cast on for dozens of samples with Squishy since we first started stocking the yarn, and we can't wait to get started working with these stunning colors.  Think of the shawls and wraps that will be possible!We hope that you can visit soon so that you can see the full range of the colors she left with us.  Our photos can't begin to do them justice.  These skeins are available in limited quantities, and won't be with us for very long base on how popular they've been this week.We hope to see you soon!
